BLACKPINK's Rosé shares why she chose all-English lyrics for her 1st solo single album tracks

AKP STAFF

On March 12, BLACKPINK member Rosé answered questions during a global press conference commemorating the release of her 1st solo single album, '-R-'. 

First, Rosé shared her thoughts on releasing her 1st solo album, 5 years after her debut in BLACKPINK. "Because it is my first solo album and I prepared for it for such a long time, I am very nervous. I'm also excited at the thought of being able to show fans what I've prepared. I'm thankful to all the Blinks for waiting so patiently, and I hope you like it."

Rosé's 1st single album contains two new tracks - the title song "On The Ground" and "Gone", which Rosé first revealed during BLACKPINK's first online concert 'The Show'. Why were these two tracks chosen for '-R-'? "Sometimes, some songs feel like fate when you're recording them. That was the case with 'Gone', which I first recorded 2 years ago. I can't forget about that moment. After I finished recording, I couldn't stop talking about how much I loved it to Teddy oppa, and I listened to it all the time. I've wanted to share it with everyone for such a long time. Both songs were just chosen naturally, like this. It was fate."

In addition, Rosé explained why both of the songs contain all-English lyrics. "I'm sure that every song has a language that suits it best. I debated a lot about what language would suit the title track, and it turned out, it was English. In truth, I was worried that fans might be disappointed with English lyrics, but I also felt that it was important to present them with a completed song, the best song that I could be satisfied with." 

Less than an hour left until the full release of Rosé's 1st solo single album '-R-'!

I’m surprised she released all English lyrics, but if that’s what she and her team think made the song best then who am I to argue. I hope the songs are wonderful and that people love them.

Personally for me when she sings in Korean it sounds very unique and special but when she sings in English it sounds kinda regular.. she still sounds good though.. Hope she does well
